Three Phases of Spinal Degeneration

Spinal degeneration is a process that can impact anyones well being. Dr. Taylor simplifies this topic by breaking it down into comprehensible segments;

  • Phase 1; Normal Alignment

    • The vertebrae exhibit their natural curvature.
    • Proper alignment supports the weight of our heads.
    • Maintaining posture and avoiding injury or trauma are key.
  • Phase 2; Loss of Natural Curvature

    • Caused by factors such as injury, poor posture or trauma.
    • The weight distribution in our heads shifts exerting pressure on the vertebrae.
    • This can lead to disc disease.
  • Phase 3; Spinal Fusion and Atrophy

    • Vertebrae gradually begin fusing
    • This fusion causes irritation to the nerves.
    • Ultimately it can result in muscle atrophy and weakness.
